Thanks to my time in the nonprofit and philanthropic sectors, I know how powerful strategic learning is to making a real impact, especially when resources are scarce and tough decisions need to be made. And I know firsthand that the Informing Change team is the best in the business! Having worked on staff at Informing Change as a project director and senior associate, I’m thrilled to continue to support and guide the company as a Board member.
Currently, I work at the intersection of higher education policy and philanthropy as Director of Public Policy at College Futures Foundation, an Oakland-based foundation that works to ensure that more students who reflect California’s diversity achieve success in college and in life. Through my work at College Futures, I direct the development and implementation of the foundation’s public policy initiatives, and advance equitable student success policies at state and institutional levels.
